Protector, perhaps you should review some of the work already done in the GUFtheory field before starting out. It'd save you time pursuing false
leads. I believe the most recent advances are in Quantum Chromodynamics. Remember that your theory has to prove to be a better model than Quantum
Electrodynamics, which can calculate the "value of some physical quantities to an accuracy of ten decimal places, a feat equivalent to calculating
the distance between New York and Los Angeles to within the thickness of a hair."
Feynman, one of the the originators of QED, was a prolific writer and his publications can be easily found in almost any library.
Here's a list of his books:
I've read the "Six Easy Pieces and Six Not-So Easy Pieces"... quite entertaining (as is "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman".) If you haven't
read his "Quantum Electrodynamics", that really needs to be the first book on your list.
His formulas are pretty easy to follow if you've had calc.
Note: There's a lot of web pages around where people who don't know an integral from a transfinite cardinal go around giving theories. Ignore
those... they haven't had any physics and wouldn't know a Hopf algebra from a Lie algebra. They simply don't know what they're talking about, and
can't understand it why nobody gives them the Grand Prize for coming up with the GUT. It's like watching someone tell you he's going to construct
the Golden Gate Bridge using only the math, tools, and materials available to the Neanderthals.
Feynman. That's the place to start.
